I've done a bit over 150 ft.

although at an amusement park (probably about 20 times) and people look like ants. Same model. Luckily it seems there was no people at the bottom in the video. That's the scariest part. Seeing stuff to scale.

I would do it in a heartbeat though, would probably need some liquid courage. 400 feet, awesome. So long as people aren't milling about in the valley. 400 ft vs 150 ft visually probably not too much of a difference unless there is some point of reference. Scary no matter what.

I got my son to jump with me a couple times at 150 ft. He says it feels like being superman. He was frightened for the first second or two of freefall the first time though.

Nothing makes one feel more liberated and alive than jumping off a cliff or from thin air knowing you will be safe but the body stating otherwise. Then you want to do it again, bigger if you can. Adrenaline is the best drug ever if used properly.

When I was a teenager we used to jump off a cliff almost 30 feet high into the water. If you landed on your back in the water it would knock the wind right out of you. So we kept people in the water. One time I did have to grab the ring.

Great video and follow up.

well i'll look again and let you know

i'm talking about a white streak which appears briefly at the extreme right top corner, above the cliff line and against a blue color.

Visible for only a few seconds... 3:23 to 3:26 at the most.

i looked severals times...but i could be wrong... are they using any white ropes?

if that's a rope..

billowy white against the blue sky I'll eat my hat.

from that distance

you can't tell the color of something that thin. all you see is the sunlight reflecting so you know something is there. it looks like at 3:17 they are using light colored ropes.

i'm not saying that the gov isn't spraying shit. i don't have a clue. but i certainly wouldn't put it past them.

a healthy dose of skepticism wouldn't hurt anybody though, esp when it comes to thinks like that. so kudos.

unfortunately it is a chemtrail

I looked many times... the video has almost 80k views or something.. the quality sucks, but the subject matter is awesome.

I'm almost 100% sure it's a chemtrail because the streak has wiggles in it and fans out at one end.

it could be reflection from the sun, but highly unlikely because the streak lacks hot spots and no little circles.

You ought to look into chemtrails if you like the outdoors... chemtrails are crimes against nature first and foremost.

Those white streaks are made up of tiny particles of aluminum and barium for the most part, which are poisonous to living organisms. In nano sized particles they can travel straight up and settle in the brain.

peace.

chemtrail

no doubt

okay, let's suppose it is..

why is the main line that's most visible sagging to the left AND the right of the knot that is holding the vertical line which everyone is swinging from?

you can clearly see 3 lines of varying tension that will hold the knot at 3:17.

agree to disagree.

agree to disagree.

even more dangerous than jumping off a cliff

is the chemtrail across the sky - top right hand corner - at 3:23 mark.

LOL!

that's the horizontal line

that crosses the canyon. it's what everyone is connected to when they swing. you can see the vertical rope swinging from it if you look closely.

i think you were trying to be funny

but it didn't work... try again.

However if you are serious, you probably need glasses and definitely get your eyes checked for color blindness.

...Just saying.

hm..

if you're talking about that tiny white streak above the left side of the line in the 3:23 frame... that's another line. what they are doing is dangerous and requires multiple redundancies in case of failure. as can be seen in many other sections of this video and on their "behind the scenes" video.

for example: 3:17 of the posted video.. you see many ropes.

this is also why the main line appears to be curved towards the knot in the middle and the line i think you're referring to is heading straight to the knot.. because they're not all pulled to the same tension.

Wait a minute... They shoot

Wait a minute... They shoot an arrow with a rope on it at a bush and then go swinging off a cliff?

There has got to be more to it than that.

hah

yea, at the end of the video there is a behind the scenes link.

Epic failure

That was difficult to watch, yet I couldn't take my eyes off the screen.

I Hope They Did the Math

A physics class changed the way I drive.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

did for me...

I can't speak for IMissLiberty, but the simple equation for kinetic energy is 1/2 mv^2. That means the energy you and your car have (which has a direct correlation on stopping distance and seriousness of a potential crash) goes up by the SQUARE of your speed.

Furthermore, the time saved by driving faster has diminishing returns the faster you go (driving 80 instead of 70 saves less time than 70 instead of 60...and so on).

I can relate from having taken various

driving courses. But since she mentioned a physics class, I wanted to know if there was something else that was applicable which I may have missed.

My Arizona? Looks like it...

Awesome video

Saw this last week...insane

Not sure I could handle that...Bungee jumped from 200 ft in the air by my ankles before...not only did I lose all the stuff in my pockets I was petrified.

Told all my buddies I was going to leap of the crane and do a bunch of silly stuff but when I got up there and could see all the miniature cars and little ants (people)I was like "HELL NO" The dude said 1...2....3....BUNGEEEEEEEE and i was suppose to jump. He said it again 1...2...3...BUNGEEEEE and I just fell out of the basket head first.

terrifying!
